Ali Edwards shared this list of “what’s on your…” that her sister posted last week as an updated version of many of those list-style memes that travel around the interwebs. I'm inspired by it today.
Here’s what’s on my…
VANITY | I don't have a vanity but I remember my Gramma having a special piece of her bedroom set that had a lower section in the middle and drawers on either side with a round mirror. She kept her hairbrush and some bobby pins on a mirrored tray and some knick-knacks there. I don't remember any makeup or jewellery - she was a farm wife who immigrated from Poland in 1927 - I'm sure makeup wasn't even on her radar. My Mom used to have a perfume bottle with an atomizer that I loved to handle when I was little. I can't remember there ever being any perfume in that bottle. I'd like a vanity - it would make me feel connected to my past.
